Kaelber is still eligible to return next year under D3's medical hardship rules. Do we know for certain that her career is over?

Once again it might be the long Christmas layoff and then another 9 day gap to yesterday’s game.  It’s tough to stay sharp at that pace.

Say, I know of a holiday tournament in Las Vegas that could help fix that scheduling issue. The Wheaton men gave it a shot one year. :)

Really?  If only the organizers would promote it more . . .! ;)

GoPerry, if I were drafting a team off CCIW rosters, my second choice from Wheaton (after Frazier) would be Hannah Williams. I see her as capable of scoring near the basket (including getting fouled) and she hits threes nicely too. I don't know why she isn't scoring more this season. She's reached 17 pts three times in 12 games, plus games of 14, 13 12. But she's been at 10 or less in 6 games.
Having a look at Wheaton's stats here
http://stats.ncaa.org/team/778/stats/15002
we see that Hannah Frazier has only 20 turnovers in 448:00, which is superb (even if she had 0 assists), considering she's the #1 option in the Thunder offense.
Some of the WBB stats on cciw.org are still screwed up, so ncaa.org is the place to look.

RogK:  Frazier, Williams and Myroth are all averaging fewer pts/g than last season, Williams just barely.  Wouldn't one think it should be the opposite for returning players having lost Devin Kyler(7.5/g) and Jen Berg (7.3/g) to graduation?

I agree that Williams does bring some scoring but I think her natural game is still from the outside.  You are correct that she has at times shown ability to drive as well as receive passes cutting to the lane and finishing which, as I posted before, the Thunder need more of from somebody.  In any case, 5 players on the perimeter passing to each other is happening a little too frequently.

The news on Kaelber and the most recent regarding IWU’s Grant Wolfe on the men’s board is a reminder of how critical it is for a team to avoid major injury to key players(Shanks).  Everyone can make pre-season predictions and create certain expectations for team success by looking at the rosters.  But the teams that end up having deep runs and special seasons are typically the ones that were able to stay healthy and avoid lots of missed games from the rotation.  It’s really a key ingredient as much as anything else – just frustratingly random and sometimes not even known by fans.

I can't remember if I heard Kaelber would not return for a 5th season. We'll find out when Carthage has a season review on their website I suppose.
Updated standings with "road wins minus home losses" :
NPU 4-1  +3
IWU 4-1  +1
CTG 3-2  +1
WHE 3-2  0
MIL 3-2  -1
AUG 3-3  0
NCC 2-4  -1
ELM 1-4  -2
CRL 1-5  -2
Augie has the bye tonight. I'll be at MIL@NPU, which should be a very good contest (?? wins 94-91 in double OT)

It's very unkind of you to wish a double-overtime barnburner on the poor broadcaster's voice, Rog.

Would you go for a 2-1 final and 78 shot clock violations?

We're not trying to put the broadcaster to sleep, either, Rog. ;)

IWU pulls away strongly in the second half, winning @EC 71-46.

For IWU:
Sosa 19
Eck 16
Lansford 10
Brovelli 10 and 8
Lowis 11 rebounds

For EC:
Goff 12
Greifenstein 10

No Shanks, no Bowen.  Need the full roster going forward, hopefully by the WC game. 

We have to admit that Eck really has a nice offensive game . . . some great moves and good scoring off the bench.  Lowis continuing to play well, pounding the boards, giving much needed support to Brovelli in that category.

11-4, 5-1.  Keep it rolling TITANS.  One game at a time.

North Park 61
Millikin 53

Emily Czuhajewski: 18 pts (5-9 trey)
Zakiya Newsome: 14 pts (8-8 FT)
Jayla Johnson: 12 pts, 12 rebs
Alisha Panthier: 8 rebs

Briana Anthony: 11 pts, 6 rebs
Aubrey Staton: 10 pts, 6 rebs
Abby Ratsch: 8 rebs
Jordan Hildebrand: 8 rebs

It wasn't a particularly well-played game tonight by either team -- neither squad shot well, and it was a turnover festival, with a lot of the TOs being unforced -- but it was definitely a spirited and high-energy affair. In the end, Emily Czuhajewski's shooting from outside, both against zone and against man, was the big difference, along with Jayla Johnson's steady work at both ends of the floor (she really blanketed Jordan Hildebrand defensively) and late free-throw shooting by Zakiya Newsome. Alisha Panthier was sort of an unsung heroine tonight (sort of, because here I am singing her praises) as she came up with a lot of boards and stops in the low post on a night in which the Vikings were without the services of Josie Summerville (sprained ankle).

Millikin is young and talented. The Big Blue are only going to get better as this season goes on.

So NPU and IWU keep pace with each other at the top of the standings at 5-1 apiece, while upset losers Wheaton and Carthage join Millikin and idle Augie in a 3-3 logjam for third place.

North Central scored 42 pts from 3-land as they upended Carthage, 68-57.
The Cardinals got 19 pts (.944 eFG%!) and 7 rebs by Allison Pearson. Maya Walls made all three of her 3FG attempts on her way to 13 pts, adding 8 rebs. IxChel Leeuwenburgh grabbed 8 rebs in just 12:00.
Carthage was led by Amanda Larson's 14 pts, 6 rebs, 5 assists and 4 steals. Kelsey Coshun shot efficiently, getting 13 pts from 5/7 2FG and 3/3 FT.

Mono is a tricky illness, and it's difficult to put a timetable on recovering from it.

Carroll topped Wheaton 73-64.
Among those who did well for the Pioneers :
Sierra Grubor 20 pts, 6 rebs, made 12/15 FTs; Kate Christian 12 pts, 8 rebs; Brooke Foster 12 pts in 17:00 by making 4/5 3FGs (1.200 eFG%).
Kayla Stefka had an efficient 11 pts in 19:00; her 2FG shooting is an outstanding .705 for the season (43/61).
For the Thunder :
Hannah Williams 16 pts (.667 eFG%) 6 assists, 6 rebs; Kirsten Madsen 14 pts (.700 eFG%); also 13 pts from Hannah Frazier and 12 from Hannah Swider; Jill Berg had 7 pts, 8 rebs, 3 blocks, 3 steals.
Carroll won the rebounding 41-29. Carroll made 22 free throws, compared to 8 by Wheaton.
The win allows the Pioneers to remain in the vicinity of a conference playoff spot; had they fallen to 1-6, things would've been discouraging.
